Online event

A 90-minute information session for employers who want to understand more about this route and how apprenticeships work.

About this event

Apprenticeships, a tool to develop much-needed occupational competence, can play a vital role in widening entry routes into the creative and cultural sector thus diversifying its workforce.

There are still myths and inaccuracies regarding apprenticeships, especially in sectors where they are still relatively new. They may appear complex and daunting at first, but can be exceptionally rewarding and beneficial, for both employer and apprentice.

This is an information session for employers who want to understand more about this route and how apprenticeships work. It will give you a solid foundation to understanding apprenticeships, with practical steps to introducing them to your organisation. It will cover:

  • The basics of what an apprenticeship is, who they are for, and how they are delivered
  • Why apprenticeships are important
  • Understanding and working with Apprenticeship Standards

This session is part of our series of Fair Access Sector Support training, supported by Arts Council England. It’s designed for anyone considering working with apprentices and is accompanied by a Manager’s Guide to Apprenticeships.

Duration: 90 minutes (including breaks)
